Our Corporate Partners
Are you able to help by sponsoring SCOUTS?
SCOUTS are always on the lookout for new partnerships. Corporate partnerships play an important role in helping make sure SCOUT activities are relevant and accessible for all. SCOUTS provide mutually beneficial sponsorship opportunities for corporate partners which are individually tailored. We approach each sponsor partnership independently, and work together to reach a sponsor agreement that is unique and based on shared values.
What SCOUTS New Zealand can offer

We can help develop and manage projects and communications that help you to connect with our network in a way that is beneficial to both through our online and face-to-face communication channels.

Ports of Auckland
Ports of Auckland Limited is the port for New Zealand’s largest city, connecting our country’s importers and exporters with more than 165 international ports in nearly 70 countries. Ports of Auckland teamed up with SCOUTS New Zealand as their first maritime industry partner in support of sea scouting to give more young people the chance to experience the joy of sailing.
Ports of Auckland have gifted a van to SCOUTS New Zealand as part of an on-going commitment to support the growth and development of scouting in the Auckland region. This partnership is helping ensure SCOUTS can continue to train and support our leaders to deliver even better programmes and ensure young people have the best possible environment to learn and have adventures.
Underwriters Laboratories Inc (UL)
The partnership arrangement with Underwriters Laboratories Inc (UL) has given SCOUTS New Zealand access to the world class Safety Smart® programme. UL are a great community partner to work with and the goals of the programme closely align to the Scouting programme. The Safety Smart® programme provides quality, on message DVDs and take home resources covering a range of safety messages and situations. SCOUTS New Zealand is thrilled to be able to offer this quality programme to our 14,000 plus Kea, Cub and Scout youth members.
‘It is our hope that the relationship will continue to develop, spreading other safety messages to Keas, Cubs and Scouts throughout New Zealand in future years.’ (Ken Wilson, General Manager UL Australasia).
